Donald Andrew McClurkin, II, popularly known as Donnie McClurkin, is a 61-year-old American gospel singer. He opened up about his sexuality in a recent episode of TV One’s Uncensored.
McClurkin disclosed he had had relationships with men and women as part of his past and struggled with homosexuality and fears he may end up alone for the rest of his life.
He confessed that he still had urges to be with men but chose not to.
McClurkin believes he “turned” gay because of childhood molestation and traumatic exposure to pornography, but was able to reverse his orientation through will and prayer.
Here is what he said: “I didn’t know really what a woman wanted. I’ve messed up more than I’ve had good. My past relationships were a sprinkling of everything – men and women. When things get rough, I go back into my safe place – my music and my ministry. Never having a long-term relationship in my life and never being married, I chalked that up. I will probably be alone for the rest of my life as far as a mate is concerned”.
